Honeymoon cruisewear: formal night

One of the fun parts of our cruise was seeing everyone decked out for the formal nights. We watched from an upper deck as fellow travellers queued up to have their photo taken with the ship captain. While Brad mused aloud about the formidable skills required to captain a ship carrying thousands of people, I sipped on a glass of wine and let myself be dazzled by the steady parade of sequins and silk. 


A drawback to cruising is you have to pack dresses that likely only get worn once. I decided to pull my dress out again for a Saturday night in Venice, but casualized it with a leather jacket. After dining alfresco, we caught a Vivaldi symphony. Walking back to our hotel, we ran into people we'd met earlier on our cruise, who invited us to join them on a patio for what turned out to be several rounds of limoncello. It was a pretty magical evening.
